Greetings friends! I wanted to thank those that left me comments about the last blog post and my journey on searching for a new place to call home. A reader and friend, Mikilann, hit it the nail on the head when she commented that I’d know the right place when it felt like home. I was having serious bouts of reconciling my love of country living and having another “farmette” with the realities of town living. The upcoming article in the next Home and Harvest magazine talks a bit about my journey … so that is all I’ll say for now.
I sort of consider myself an “old soul” and some of my favorite things that I surround myself with are often times bought at estate sales, flea markets or antique stores. It’s sort of comforting if they have a scratch or two, or a stain and I like to think that those imperfections had a great story behind it. To give you an insight of how this crazy farm-chick brain works, I would look at stained linens and think I’ll bet this happened at a Christmas dinner when Uncle Art’s toupee fell off when he was laughing at a joke an spilled his wine…” you know, that sort of story that I create in my mind. But back to my big announcement! I saw a place that spoke to my soul, it is old but lovingly restored, there are some dents, imperfections and charm galore to make my heart skip a beat. As of last Friday, I am the official owner of vintage beauty which will now be the new location for my S-Wheat Farm. The setting speaks to my soul, as it is set amidst farm fields plus has a close up view of the mountains. A perfect blend for my love of wheat fields and the mountains that I grew up with. Like my momma says, once a Montanan, always a Montanan… guess she’s right. But I still need to see those rolling hills of the Palouse.
Today as I was moving some stuff into the barn, one of my neighbors stopped by to welcome me to the neighborhood. It warmed my heart and I knew I was home.
It is bittersweet to be moving, cleaning and readying my Genesee place for the new owner – just like Spring, it is a new season and a new start is on the horizon for this gal. I have lots of plans... and like it or not..... well I'm dragging you with me on the next round of adventures. Lol
|An exciting day in this girl's world!|
